Campus

Location

The city of Ohio was founded by United States citizens in 1833 on the west bank of the Maumee River, and originally incorporated as part of Monroe County, Michigan Territory. It was re-founded in 1837, after conclusion of the Toledo War, when it was incorporated in Ohio. With an approximate population of 279,989 the city was 67th largest city in the U.S. The prominence of this city is held by its glass industry that's why it also has a nick name of "The Glass City". The city of Toledo is defined as underrated while few others feel that it is completely boring with all the busy streets and its industry. But it is not a total waste, you will be visiting the city only once a week so you can get out and find some. P.S- beware of the shady ghettos.

Campus

University of Toledo withstands on a campus of total 1240 acres in which the area of Health Science and Scott Parks is also included. The campus seems fairly big but is communicable by foot as all the buildings are located at one place. The equipment for Medical and Engineering are of good quality and students are happy with them. There are few buildings though which need some repairing but only if university administration pays attention to it. The classes are big and canteen provides average quality and taste of food. Problem being students do not prefer eating out as the campus is surrounded by Ghettos on one side and by busy streets on another. Many students have registered a problem of safety during night and university has done nothing about it since ages. There are only 2 guards who take care of this big campus at night which is not fair.

Residing Options

University of Toledo offers students both housing and dining options. The on-campus housing cost for a typical student was $6,831 in 2015 - 2016 and the cost for a typical meal plan was $3,782.This is one of the most affordable prices seen in any on-campus housing and meal facility but considering the quality of food they do not seem worth it. There are few complaints regarding the dorm facilities, students have complained that the dorm is filled with 10 people while there is place for only 2. The university is very much obsessed with football and prefers spending most of the money on their team and stadium.

Faculty

Just like any other place the faculty at UT is a bit better than 'good'. The university has appointed good staff and with its urban campus professors are more than happy to work with such universities. The professors are marked as kind, generous, helpful and will solve any doubt of yours at any given time. The professors of Science, engineering and medical section are considered as one of the best within the campus and no one has anything but compliments for them. The problem is with the syllabus, sometimes you might feel that a professor is teaching you something which has no connection with your syllabus but that has nothing to do with professor's teaching method. Academics are fairly good and education is taken care in this university.

Jobs and placements

Well, almost 50% of students have denied that the university has helped them in any way get their careers sorted. The career department in the campus claims to have a middle man who finds jobs for students but in reality that middle man is called 'monsterjob.com'. University does not really gather employers' attention to come for placements in campus and students generally go and find their job themselves. There are few gathering conducted within the campus where you may end up meeting alumni of the university, but its pure luck and one can't simply rely on that.
